2014 Advent Carol Service


Our Advent Carol Service took place on Sunday 30th November 6pm at our church in Rossett. We began this popular joint prayer and fellowship 3 years ago with our fellow Christians in Llay and Rossett.  It is an opportunity to begin preparing for the birth of Christ, Son of the One God, born for the salvation of all, together, as one.  A truly blessed night –enjoyed and appreciated by all, in our little church at Rossett.  Well done and many, many thanks to everyone involved. And £350 was raised for “Mary’s Meals”.

Stations Of The Cross

According to the Method of St. Francis of Assisi


For Roman Catholics throughout the world, the Stations of the Cross are synonymous with Lent, Holy Week and, especially, Good Friday. This devotion is also known as the "Way of the Cross", the "Via Crucis", and the "Via Dolorosa." It commemorates 14 key events on day of Christ's crucifixion. The majority concern His final walk through the streets of Jerusalem, carrying the Cross.


The Stations originated in medieval Europe when wars prevented Christian pilgrims from visiting the Holy Land. European artists created works depicting scenes of Christ's journey to Calvary. The faithful installed these sculptures or paintings at intervals along a procession route, inside the parish church or outdoors. Performing the devotion meant walking the entire route, stopping to pray at each "station."


This ancient and lovely devotion will be prayed throughout Lent on every Friday, at 7pm in Llay.  Some people love to pray the stations alone on other occasions – a devotion highly commended, especially during Lent.

Silent hour of prayer every week before the Blessed Sacrament


A silent hour of prayer every week before the Blessed Sacrament to pray for our bishops, priests and all those in the consecrated life during this “Year of Consecrated Life”.  It also gives each of us  the opportunity to have some time alone with Jesus and He with us. Continues this Wednesday 18 February from 8pm to 9pm, at Llay.
